Abstract: In wireless communication fading is a phenomenon which degrades the performance of the link it includes Rayleigh, Nakagami-q, Nakagami-m, Rician fading. In this paper the performance of wireless link over Rician fading channel have been analysed. A closed form expressions of outage probabilities, bit error rate (BER), end to end average received signal to noise ratio (SNR) and channel capacity are derived for Rician fading channel. Outcome of this paper will be helpful for establishing wireless link in Rician fading channel.

Keywords: Bit error rate, channel capacity, outage probability, Rician fading channel, signal to noise ratio.
